How was your Christmas? I hope you were able to spend time with those you love. We had a quiet day. Hubby and I stayed up till early morning to finish baking and wrapping gifts. I also was able to squeeze in some sewing. I’ve been trying to make reusable items for our home. I whipped up these napkins to go with Christmas dinner.
I had these fabrics laying around since last year. The Christmas fabric is flannel and the lining I used cotton. I washed them all the night before so they were ready to go. These were an absolutely quick sew project. If you don’t have flannel you can always use cotton. I like two layers for absorbency and I like the weight with the double layer of fabric. I chose to sew these then turn them right side out but you can also serged the edges and skip the turning and top stitching.
I also realized that we needed new Santa hats. I went to the store and bought some Sherpa and no-pill fleece to ship up some hats. I was aiming for fur for the band but there was no white fur in sight so Sherpa was a good choice. I measured my husband’s head and dusted off my serger to work on these. the Sherpa was so thick my poor serger had a hard time but it worked out great. the seams are nicely finished inside. I took the easy way out and cut off the pom poms from the old hats to use since I could not locate my polyester filling. It worked out really well and Santa was very happy with his new hat.
